Reads Nursery has been passionate about plants and fruit trees since 1841. We are a small family business run by myself and my wife Debbie. We can help you with a wide range of Fruit and Ornamental trees, many tried and tested old varieties to give you the best choice of trees for your garden that will reliably crop and produce fruit for you.
A native of Persia, the fig - Ficus carica -has long been a coveted fruit. It was grown in Britain by the Romans along with the vine. The flavour of fresh figs compares with any tropical fruit, although this succulent crop is decidedly easier to grow. A restricted root run is preferable for fruiting trees.
Trees of all types can make memorable presents for birthdays, anniversaries or any special occaision. We can send out a tree wrapped in an attractive hessian cover with ribbon and a hand made gift card with a special message from you inside.
